QNX to provide software platform for next-gen Audi infotainment system
Audi's decision to use the QNX Neutrino RTOS is the latest development in a long relationship between the two companies, said. The company already provides the operating system and multimedia middleware for Audi's MMI system, including the MMI generation in the 2010 Audi A8.
The software supports symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), which allows the infotainment system to take full advantage of the ARM Cortex-A9 multi-core processor selected for the hardware. In addition, the operating systems supports transparent distributed processing, which helps reduce overall hardware costs. As a result of these features the A8 infotainment system will be the first automotive system to provide 3D navigation powered by Google Earth.
The QNX Neutrino RTOS forms the foundation of the QNX CAR application platform, which accelerates the prototyping and productizing of in-vehicle systems through an innovative business model and pre-integrated technologies from a broad ecosystem of industry leaders.
